more than a spy story

by readersreader on Oct 2, 2008

There is so much interwoven intrigue, and so much real history in this story, that it is hard to outline and make sense ot it. Feliks and Lydia are Russians, and fall madley in love. Lydia is from high society, and Feliks is an anarchist. Lydia's father has Feliks arrested and tortured, and marries Lydia off to an English Lord. 19 years go by, and now they are all thrown back together. Prince Orlov of Russia is visiting his good friend Lord Walton in London, where they are talking about joining forces against the Germans in case war breaks out. Feliks is in London determained to kill Prince Orlov so there will be no treaty between England and Russia (he doesn't want to see Russian peasants slaughtered in a war they know nothing about). In Feliks first attempt at murder, he runs into Lydia, and finds out what happened to her while he was in prison, and why he never saw her again. He finds out that Charlotte, Lydia's daughter, is his daughter. His resolve for murder is shaken, to say the least. Now you have almost all the intrigue. Read the book and find out how it all turns out.

Very Interesting thriller

by rainbowstew on Aug 16, 2007

I first read this about 20 years ago, and then read it again recently on the occasion of giving a copy of it to a friend of mine from Russia. It is a very interesting thriller set in the early 1900s, right before the start of World War 1, and is an intriguing story concerning national leaders primarily of England and Russia, and the efforts of a Russian revolutionary to prevent Russia from getting mixed up with England in the forthcoming war. It is like everything of Ken Follet's that I have ever read, i.e. difficult to put down once you get started on it.
